MIC has been a proud supporter of the Cobb County Adopt-A-Mile program for over a decade. MIC has officially adopted about a mile of Floyd Road and over a mile of Old Powder Springs Road. The Adopt-A-Mile Committee works with other neighborhood groups on other streets, listed below. Clean-ups are held at least several times a month at 9:00 am on Saturday mornings. It’s not glamorous work, but it’s great to see our neighborhood clean and neat. And, each time we clean up our mile, there seems to be less trash to collect, so we are confident that we are making a difference. Check our events calendar for announcements of the specific locations and dates.
10/1/2020-9/30/21 MIC spent 150 hours removing 233 bags of litter, 2 pieces of furniture, and 15 tires

Barry Krebs, a member of the Keep Cobb Beautiful Board, works with churches, businesses, and neighborhood groups to adopt a mile of their own. If all the miles in Mableton were cleaned up regularly, just imagine how much better our town would look! If you are interested in adopting a mile (or miles), contact Barry.
